Dividend Policy

The Company adopts a residual dividend policy for the purpose of continuing expansion and increasing profitability.

Any surplus at the end of a year shall first be applied to cover losses from the previous years and pay taxes according to the law, and a statutory surplus reserve and a special surplus reserve will be allocated. The remaining balance will then first be used to distribute the accumulated undistributed dividends and current dividends for Class A special shares. The remaining balance is added to the undistributed surplus at the beginning of the period for the board of directors to devise a distribution proposal to be approved at a shareholders' meeting.

The distribution of employee bonuses in the preceding paragraph shall be devised separately by the board of directors. If dividends are to be distributed in shares, the employees of the subsidiaries may be included to receive the dividends.

According to the Company's business plan, the principle is to distribute share dividends to retain a necessary amount of capital, and the excess may be distributed in cash dividends. Cash dividends may not be less than 10% of the total dividends to be distributed for the current year.
